Kitt, You always do a great job keeping us informed of the facts.
Got it, thanks!
I sent the file today. Xo
Stats don’t tell the real story. As individuals, everyone could fit into at least one of these categories. Most people don’t want to be shunned by sharing who they are. People often times are caught up with the illness and don’t see the person. That’s stigma. The illness becomes the identity instead of the other way around. What is it that scares people so much that many go out of there way to isolate someone that’s different then they are? If someone didn’t know you had a mental illness, do you believe they would treat you as an equal? I’m inclined to say, yes. However, we live in a world that is not always honest about this issue.
No problem! Welcome to comment anonymously.
Would love to read the PDF version. Just email to me. Thanks!

Interesting to see it in that format. Thanks for the info.
What a great infographic! Thanks for sharing.
This post exemplifies why I always share your blog with others – you always share relevant, current information!
p.s. Thanks a million for pre-ordering my book. I thought you might get a kick out of seeing the PDF version (which has plenty of errors that are supposed to be fixed), but if you want to wait for the final version, I get it! 🙂
The more ya know, huh? 🙂
